After the introduction of the new Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 and Geforce RTX 2080 Ti, the still very fast Geforce GTX 1080 Ti appeared for many PC gamers as a more sensible alternative because cheaper. But now it seems to be the end of this popular model, reports Gamers Nexus.
Geforce RTX 2000 – All information and details on the new Nvidia graphics cards
Several sources at the graphics card manufacturers have confirmed that there are almost no Geforce GTX 1080 Ti stocks and Nvidia also offers any of the GP102 graphics chips needed. Thus, Nvidia should probably have discontinued production of the Pascal graphics chip – or just released for the production of Quadro professional graphics cards.
At least it is certain that the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is becoming increasingly expensive in world trade, which indicates a high demand with smaller and smaller quantities. In the United States and Germany, there is now the new Geforce RTX 2080, which supports the still idle Raytracing, the same price as a Geforce GTX 1080 Ti. A few weeks ago Geforce GTX 1080 Ti was still significantly cheaper.
What is Raytracing?
Presumably, other Pascal Geforce GTX 1080, Geforce GTX 1070 Ti or Geforce GTX 1070 models in the coming weeks are likely to be slower and thus will make the new Geforce RTX 2070 even more appealing. As our review of an MSI Geforce RTX 2070 Armor 8G shows, the Geforce RTX 2070 offers a significantly more realistic price / performance ratio than the other two Turing graphics cards. In addition, there are no reports of intriguing glitches in this model, as is the case of the Geforce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition.
